First of all, I completely new to Linux.. (about 2 weeks now)
I've only tried Ubuntu/Kubuntu till now and was happy to get TV-OUT, Beryl (for the cube and effects) and my webcam working for MSN after a lot of reading.
Then I heard something about Sabayon so I checked some resources and was shocked to see so many programs 'out of the box' and XGL working without a headache
So I'd downloaded the 64 bit version of 3.1, burned it to DVD and installed it...
I had chosen the default KDE install and when It was ready the problems begun.
Yes Beryl worked fine from the start and I was happy to see that 'huge' amount of content in my menu but my monitor wasn't recognized correctly and couldn't find a way to change it in xorg.conf (like sudo gedit or sudo nano) because it would given me a message that I was not the right user and it would alarm the administrator or something.
When I would leave the monitor like it was and wanted to change the resolution to 1024x768 for example, the screen would react very strange with the taskbar in the middle on the screen and I wasn able to fix it from there, also the refresh rate was very low on that resolution(60hz) while I mostly have 85hz in Linux (1024x768) and 100hz in Windows (1024x768).
Also sometimes the mouse didn't always work, sometimes the buttons were functioning for 'zooming' functions and couldn't use the left mousebutton for clicking items.
Because of this problems I'm back on Ubuntu because I need my pc daily so I don have a lot of time to wait and solve a lot of issues but I wish I could have used Sabayon without those monitor problems because the rest was stunning great.
I'll keep an eye on this one and hope to be able to use Sabayon with my monitor on the right screen settings one day.
